From 07/29/13 notes. Had on tap at Idle Hands in NYC. Served in a pint glass.

a - Pours a hazy orange-yellow color with one inch of white head and moderate carbonation evident.

s - Smells of bananas, fruity malts, spice, yeast, cloves, floral notes, earthy notes, light pepper. Nice nose, lots of bananas and fruit to it.

t - Tastes of banananas, fruity malts, spices, Belgian yeast, cloves, pepper, earthy notes, and hay. More pepper and spice here, though still nice.

m - Medium body and low carbonation. Pretty easy to drink.

o - Overall I'm surprised to see the overall reviews so low for this one as I liked it quite a bit. It has a lot of fruit and bananas to it, and it is easy to drink. Would order it again.

The beer pours out in a slightly hazy, but very pale golden color.

The aroma is a bit light with a bit of lemon citrus, grainy malt, a hint of that bar yard funk.

The flavor follows with those same notes, but with mostly a lot of blandness. It's quite bready, but some saison notes, but just very muted.

A crisp and easy drinking beer, but does not hit the saison notes strong enough.

Poured a caramel-orange murky color with 1-2 fingers of cloudy white head when I got it. Good amount of thick lacing along the sides. Forever lasting retention.

Smelled Belgian spices, sour fruit, kiwi, grape, pepper, banana, cloves, Juicy Fruit and some resin notes.

Tasted similar to the nose with Belgian peppery speices, resin hops, cloves, banana, Juicy Fruit, grape and kiwi. Could taste the alcohol for sure.

Light-to-medium body. Oily-to-creamy texture. Lively-to-high carbonation. Long, bitter finish.

Not quite as good as I hoped, but decent. I probably wouldn’t have it again though.
